We start a new eTwinning project this year: RadioActive T.E.A.M. (The European Audio Magazine).
Click here to go to the Twinspace.
Student-journalists from various European countries share their perceptions of international news, interact and collaborate in international teams for a school year. They express themselves through a variety of media: they participate in a school web-radio channel including a selection of programmes designed by the teams – composing their theme music, writing radio scripts and editing radio podcasts about topics related to their interests and global issues. They also collaborate to create and publish an e-magazine presenting current events from their perspective. Each international team will create a 10-15 minutes programme about a topic in common. The national groups will have to work on the topic choose a different format: interview, documentary, drama, talk show, etc.
The tasks for October and November are:
- Break the ice!
- Personal profile: Complete the personal profile with information about your age, school, nationality and interests.
- Group presentation: introduce your national group in this padlet writing about your interests in common and about what you expect in this project.
- Guided tour: Visit the other partners’ guided tours and complete the quiz.
- Forum#1: React to your partners’ presentations and guided tours in the forum#1
- Forum#2: Think about a topic for your radio programme and visit forum#2 to join another group or make a new proposal.
